This week, my family opened four new bank accounts at Tangerine, deposited $500, and we were given a bonus of $250. That’s like getting 50% interest, just for opening 2 chequing accounts, and 2 savings accounts for our kids.
Here’s how we did it:
When I was looking to open proper bank accounts for my kids, I canvassed around for new account bonus deals. Many needed payroll, auto bill payments, or other sorts of things to be set up to receive an iPad Mini or the like.
Only Tangerine offers an actual new account cash bonus, no fees, and then another bonus when you open an account for your kids.
How It Works
I opened account for myself. I used an ORANGE KEY (42579296S1) and got $50 for being a new customer, then passed an ORANGE KEY (42579296S1) on to my wife who got $50 for opening a new account and passed a $50 referral bonus back to me.
You also get $50 bonus when you open accounts for your kids and deposit $250. Really, it’s just a savings account attached to your newly opened chequing account. So each of us then opened a kids’ account for one of the boys.
We don’t plan on using the chequing accounts, but they have no fees. You use the chequing to deposit, then go online and transfer into kids’ new savings acct where they make 1.5% interest.
We deposited $250 into our new chequing accounts. And immediately just transferred it over to the kids’ savings accounts to trigger the bonus. Our chequing accounts have $0, their savings have all the money, we get all the bonus cash.
It’s that ORANGE KEY. You need a referral code to kick in that first $50 bonus when you open a new account. To start off, you can use my ORANGE KEY: 42579296S1 at http://www.tangerine.ca. Once you have an account, you then pass your own key on to your spouse to get the next referral bonus. Then open kid accounts, transfer in the $250, and BOOM!
If you have more kids, you’ll make even more money. You basically get $50 to start from the referral, and then $50 for each child account you open.
Seriously, that’s it. Deposit $250. Use the ORANGE KEY: 42579296S1. Get $50 bonus. Repeat.
